Segura’s second outing in a row beats the Phillies at the Yankees – –

PHILADELPHIA (AP) – Jean Segura scored Ronald Torreyes with a single in the infield in the 10th inning for his second straight hit and the Philadelphia Phillies secured a third straight play-off victory with an 8-7 victory over the New York Yankees Saturday.

After Yankees star DJ LeMahieu hit a three-run equalizer in the ninth, Archie Bradley (2-1) threw a perfect 10th to block the designated runner.

Travis Jankowski led late in the inning against Aroldis Chapman (4-2) by shooting the pitcher’s error. Jankowski crashed into the left side of the mound and Chapman lined up the ball, checked Torreyes on second, then rushed a high pitch on first. Torreyes, the designated runner, advanced to third place.

Odubel Herrera came out, then Segura punched third baseman Gio Urshela, who dove towards the line to catch it but couldn’t relay the ball home before Torreyes sprinted.

Segura hit a two-run single over the left center wall Thursday to wrap up a 4-3 win over the Braves. Luke Williams’ home run on Wednesday sent the Phillies to the first of their three spectacular wins.

Bryce Harper doubled up, had two singles and produced two for the Phillies, who won five of six.

Sanchez hit a solo homerun and got an RBI single, and Rougned Odor also went deep for the Yankees, who lost six of eight.

Hector Neris missed his fourth save on 13 occasions for Philadelphia in the ninth.

After starting the frame with one out, Neris made Brett Gardner and Tyler Wade walk. LeMahieu tied it by driving a 2-2, 84 mph divider over the left wall for his fourth homerun, causing the large contingent of Yankees fans in attendance to erupt.

Neris avoided more damage by removing Aaron Judge and Gleyber Torres.

The Phillies came close to winning in the ninth after Harper’s brace against Chad Green. Rhys Hoskins stepped out and Andrew McCutchen was intentionally stepped on before Torres made a life-saving dive stop on Alec Bohm’s floor in the middle. Torres kept the ball in the infield to prevent Harper from scoring and moved up to second for an out. Green struck out Torreyes to end the set.

Chapman, closest to the Yankees, lost his second straight outing. He allowed two home runs in New York’s 7-5 loss to Minnesota on Thursday.

The Phillies scored four points in the first against Jameson Taillon, who recorded just one out before being lifted. After three singles to open the game, Harper called with a two-run down center single. Two hitters later, McCutchen hit a sacrifice fly, and Taillon’s day ended after giving up Bohm’s RBI single.

Phillies starter Vince Velasquez allowed two runs and six hits with five strikeouts and one walk in five innings.


This is the shortest outing on record for Taillon, whose ERA fell from 5.09 to 5.74. The right-hander’s previous career shortest stint was 1 2/3 innings, also in Philadelphia as he pitched for the Pirates on April 19, 2018. In three starts at Citizens Bank Park, the No. 2 pick in the 2010 draft has an 11.57. ERA with nine runs and 13 hits allowed in seven innings.


In the second round since the restrictions on fan participation in Philadelphia were lifted, a crowd of 38,450 was the largest for the Phillies since 2019. Yankees fans appeared to make up at least half of those in attendance, with many in attendance. “Let’s Go Yankees! Chants arise throughout the game.
